MS Life - Saturday 14th April

After my recent experience talking to MSers at the Redbridge branch of the MS Society I need to rethink my presentation at MS Life.

The following is a draft programme for the Saturday:

Saturday 14 April (Day 1) 
11:00 - 11:30 MS Society welcome
11:30 - 12:15 Rehabilitation - Prof. Alan Thompson
12:15 - 13:00 Myelin Repair - Prof. Charles ffrench-Constant & Prof. Robin Franklin
13:45 - 14:30 Immunology - Dr Alasdair Coles
14.45 - 15:30 Disease Modifying Drugs - Prof. Gavin Giovannoni
16:00 - 17:00 Debate Session

"If previous years are anything to go by, most of the attendees will have progressive MS. I am therefore planning to focus on progressive MS and only briefly mention advance in the field of relapsing disease. What do you think?"


  1. Good idea, but then I'm biased! Seriously, eventually, unfortunately, people with RR are likely to become progressive so will have an interest in the field. I look forward to seeing you...

  2. I wish there was something useful for prog MS.

    Doctors just hand over baclofen and expect you to be greatful for it.

    I say we prog MSers should have options. Why can we not yet access Sativex or fampradine for our spastiscity without having to jump through hoops of fire? It's not fair.

    Why is prog MS not an NHS priority?

  3. Re: "Why is prog MS not an NHS priority?"

    You are wrong! Have you read the national service framework for long-term conditions? MS is a long-term condition.
